Iran probe finds Mahsa Amini died of illness, not 'blows'

The death of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini was caused by illness rather than blows or beatings, said an official medical report published Friday, three weeks after she died in custody.

Iran's Forensic Organization said "Mahsa Amini's death was not caused by blows to the head and vital organs and limbs of the body", in its report published on state television.

Her death was related to "surgery for a brain tumour at the age of eight," the same source added.
